LONG LANCE hiding ourselves as much as possible, and creeping upon the other unexpectedly—like the Indian fights. Our fathers made us do that, so that we would be good warriors when we grew up. Our battles sometimes lasted for an hour or more. When the big fight was over, the fellow having the most scalps was the 'big brave' of the entire camp of youngsters, and remained so for many days afterward. Following our battles we would hold a big vic- tory-dance,, as our fathers did, and we would make the first five boys holding the most scalps our heroes at these fetes. As we danced our dance of victory we would provide five special seats for these distinguished 'warriors', and make the lesser braves wait upon them and feed them, as they sat stolidly and viewed the dance in their honour. When we returned to our camp in the afternoon and displayed our five 'biggest braves', our elders would pat them on the back and tell them that some day they would be great warriors like their fathers; and we youngsters used to take this very seriously. Our mothers and fathers greatly en- couraged us to take part in the games of war, that we might grow up to be "men of honour5. When we were not out on our war skirmishes we were contesting our strength and skill against one another in camp. We were never idle; we played incessantly.
